      New York, 1968. Portfolio set of 10 lithographs. Individually framed, accompanied by the original folding box. From an edition of 250, one of 230 signed. Fine. When Georgia O'Keeffe created the original drawing published in this limited edition print portfolio, she was still an unknown artist. The drawings, begun in 1915, are considered by art historians to be among the earliest and most individual manifestations of abstraction in American modern art. In 1968, O'Keeffe personally selected ten of her drawings - those that she though represented the range and variety of her work - for this project. Chip Benson, a MacArthur Prize-winning artist and a former Dean of the Yale School of Art, worked with Doris Bry, the leading authority on O'Keeffe's art, to create the prints. The lithographs were then published by Atlantis Editions, the imprint founded by Bry, and was the first of many collaborative projects undertaken by the pair. The ten drawings were printed in 300-line screen offset lithography; nine of the plates were made in black and white, and "Blue Lines" was printed in a striking blue. Two hundred thirty copies were numbered and signed by O'Keeffe herself. In the original folding box is also included a booklet with an introduction by art historian Lloyd Goodrich. The works exemplify O'Keeffe's use of undulating, spiral motifs, with swirling and delicate forms that draw in the eye and create dynamic compositions.

        2001: A Space Odyssey

      New York: New American Library, 1968. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED by Clarke on half-title. Clarke's novel, adapted from his short-story The Sentinel (1951), was written simultaneously with the screenplay for Stanley Kubrick's classic film and published shortly after the movie's release. "[The novel] is a fantasy-you need not believe it-but a fantasy by a master who is as deft at generating accelerating, almost painful suspense as he is knowledgeable and accurate (and fascinating) about the technical and human details of space flight and exploration. But it is finally the stretching of the imagination that is most enthralling as Mr. Clarke entices the reader into strange and magnificent conceptions of other forms of time, dimension and existence" (Eliot Fremont-Smith, New York Times ). New York: New American Library, 1968. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket with a hint of wear at top of spine. Rare signed and in such good condition.

"Mammoth attempt to picture the world as it may well be in the early twenty-first century -- overpopulated, over automated, and torn by riots and muggings. The pop sociologist Chad C. Mulligan comments wryly on it all, and he is the nearest thing to a hero in this densely peopled book. Primarily didactic in intent, it borrows surface bravura from John Dos Passos's social realist USA trilogy (1930-1936)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 343.

ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE CZECH POET'S CLASSIC WORK, PUBLISHED AS A SIGNED LIMITED EDITION AND ADDITIONALLY INSCRIBED BY SEIFERT TO THE ACTOR JIRI VOSKOVEC - Octavo, 9-1/2 inches high by 6-1/4 inches wide. Softcover, bound with a red silk cord in stiff printed creamy white wraps with the title and author's name stamped in black above the initials "TGM" [i.e. T.G. Masaryk] embossed in blind on the front cover. The covers are very slightly soiled. 28 pages plus the colophon, with poems printed in black and titled in red, illustrated with 4 plates printed in gray and black after drawings by Josef Capak. Near fine. <p>Limited edition of 300 numbered copies on handmade paper, signed & dated "28.X.68" by the author.<p>An association copy of this signed limited edition, additionally inscribed in Czech by Seifert to fellow Devetsil poet, the great Czech actor/writer Jiri Voskovec and dated "16.XI.68".<p>The typography is by Oldrich Hlavsa.<p>This publication of Seifert's classic work was inspired by the Prague Spring of 1968 and prepared by Rudolf Havel. In April of 1968, Seifert headed a committee formed by the Writer's Union to rehabilitate literary figures who were persecuted after the Communist takeover in 1948.<p>Jaroslav Seifert (1901-1986) was a leading member of the avant-garde in Czechoslovakia during the 1920's. He was one of the founders of the journal Devetsil. Seifert was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1984 "for his poetry which endowed with freshness, sensuality and rich inventiveness provides a liberating image of the indomitable spirit and versatility of man".<p>Seifert's cycle of poems, "Osm dni" [Eight Days], first published in 1937, expresses the mood of mourning following the death of the founder and first President of Czechoslovakia Thomas Garrigue Masaryk on September 14, 1937.<p>Jiri [George] Voskovec was born Jiri Wachsmann [1905-1981]. He was a much revered Czech actor and playwright. After World War 1 Voskovec appeared with Jan Werich [1905-1980] as one of a comic duo in the tradition of Laurel and Hardy. "Together with Jaroslav Jezek, the father of Czech jazz, they moulded dadaism, circus, jazz, Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and American vaudeville into a new art form. They created a new form of intellectual political musical." - [Josef Skvorecky: "All the Bright Young Men and Women"]. Having created a sensation with their "Vest Pocket Revue" in April 1927, V + W were invited to join the Devetsil theatre group in May. In 1929 they renamed the group "Liberated Theatre" ["Osvobozene Divadlo"] and they took over every element of the productions. During the 1930s the productions of V + W became increasingly anti-fascist and their "Liberated Theatre" was eventually forced to close in 1938. The following year they fled to the United States. After World War 2 Voskovec settled permanently in the U.S. and Werich returned to Czechoslovakia. Both actors went on to have long careers in film, Voskovec appearing in 72 movies and Werich in more than 50.

        Fünf Porträts.

      [Berlin um ] 1968 - Etwa 29 : 25 cm. Tusche auf Papier mit ausgesparten Gucklöchern. Signiert. Es handelt sich um schnell getuschte Porträts, teils mit geringen Vorzeichnungen mit Bleistift, die auf Papiereinkaufstüten aufgeklebt wurden und dann gleichsam als »Narrenmasken« dienten. Die fünf Künstler stülpten sich diese Masken über den Kopf und traten so auf Kunstausstellungen oder in der Öffentlichkeit auf. Diese Aktion galt wohl eher als eine Persiflage auf die Happeningkultur der Popgeneration, diente aber als gelungene Werbeaktion: Die Künstlergruppe als Bürgerschreck und Bohemiens sorgten für Aufmerksamkeit. - Diese Gelegenheitsarbeiten waren nach Benutzung obsolet und wurden meist entsorgt. Hier ist ein seltener, wahrscheinlich einziger Beleg zur Verkleidungstechnik der »Rixdorfer« überliefert. - Ali Schindehütte, Josi Vennekamp, Uwe Bremer und Arno Waldschmidt haben ihre Selbstporträts signiert. Das Porträt von Günter Bruno Fuchs fertigte und signierte Arno Waldschmidt. - Als Trägertüten dienten Tüten der Firma »Bärenmarke« (4) und »Hansa-Pils« (1). Die Authentizität ist durch Albert Schindehütte bestätigt. -Gebrauchs- und Lagerspuren. 2.000 gr. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
